After an exciting ODI series, where Pakistan had the better of Zimbabwe - winning it by 2-1, we are now waiting for the T20 series to begin. While Zimbabwe does not boast of a great record against Pakistan, yet the current batch has all the potential to make history when they meet at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, this Saturday evening. We are expecting a cracker of a game, so better not miss out on it.
To make this weekend even more fruitful, I have already handpicked the top three winning player bets from the market and listed it below. Just go through my analysis and invest in them to become richer by the end of the game.
One of the best limited-overs batsman at the present moment for sure, with his records speaking highly of him. In the last three T20Is, his scores were - 21, 56, 66 n.o, having scored a total of 143 runs, at a rate of 71.5 runs per innings. Overall, in the 12 matches played at home the right-hander has scored a total of 487 runs, averaging a staggering 54.11 runs per innings, which is also impressive, which also supports our cause.
The right-hander has been in phenomenal form off-late, with him scoring loads of runs in the 2020 National Cup, having amassed a total of 275 runs (39, 0, 64 n.o, 86, 86 n.o), at a rate of 91.66 runs per innings. Having played 7 matches in the 2020 T20 Blast, the Pakistani managed to score 218 runs, at a rate of 31.14 runs per innings, which includes a century. So, he has been among runs in the past year or so, which makes it obvious on why we should invest money on him for the upcoming match.
There is no doubt that the bet is a no-brainer, with the right-hander needing just 17 runs to bring us money, with him in great form from the ODI series as well. In the last five matches, his scores were - 59 n.o, 1, 19, 0, 27, having amassed a total of 106 runs, at a rate of 26.5 runs per innings, with him scoring at least 17 runs in three of the above-mentioned matches. Incidentally, all of those matches were played in the Asian sub-continent, with him familiar with the conditions in this part of the world.
Overall, in 40 T20Is he has played in his career so far, the right-hander has scored a total of 878 runs, at a rate of 25.82 runs per innings, with him scoring at least 17 runs in seven of his last 12 matches. Interestingly, in Day/Night matches, his record shows a steep rise, with him involved in 12 matches, racking up a total of 363 runs, maintaining a healthy average of 40.33 runs per innings, which is incredible. With the stage set for him already, we are expecting at least 17 runs from his blade in the upcoming match.
Going by the recent form, this wonuld not be a very risky one to back up Craig Ervine to score just 17 runs in the upcoming match. In the last eight T20Is, his scores were - 29, 8, 10, 11, 68 n.o, 55, 29, 59, having racked up a total of 269 runs, at a rate of 38.42 runs per innings, with him scoring at least 17 runs in five of the above-mentioned matches. The left-hander has been in fine form in the past year or so, with him even scoring 328 runs (55 n.o, 73 n.o, 2, 83 n.o, 96, 19), scoring at a rate of 109.33 runs per innings.
Overall, in 24 T20s played in his career so far, his average stands at 22.63 runs per innings, with him scoring at least 17 runs in six of the last 10 matches, which proves he is not giving his wicket away too cheaply. With odds of 1.83 offered for the deal, we should definitely invest money on this one.
